Conference Room Dedicated to Neva

A conference room in Bldg. 4 was dedicated to Dr. Franklin A. Neva, director of the NIAID Laboratory of Parasitic Diseases (LPD) from 1969 to 1993. He then served as a section head from 1993 to 2005. He made significant scientific contributions in the field of virology and in the areas of malaria, leishmaniasis and strongyloides. Neva transformed the LPD into a modern world-renowned branch that is at the forefront of vaccine development, molecular biology and immunology for parasitic diseases. He officially retired from NIH on Jan. 1, 2005, but is now a scientist emeritus, and is active in clinical and lab work.

Well-wishers greet NIAID’s Dr. Franklin Neva (l), in whose honor a conference room in Bldg. 4 was recently dedicated. Among those dropping in was NIAID director Dr. Anthony Fauci (r).
